Sports Nutrition

Athletes have special energy and nutrient needs above and beyond those of a typical diet.  In fact, nutrition plays an essential role in endurance, performance, and recovery.

Without appropriate fueling, you may never reach your true potential.

At RG Nutrition and Wellness, I work with athletes at all skill levels — from training for a first 5K, to seasoned marathoners or triathletes, to college and high school athletes looking to enhance their performance on the field.  As an athlete myself, I understand the importance of translating the latest scientific evidence into practical sports nutrition recommendations, and then fitting them into your specific athletic goals.

Some of the athletes I’ve worked with includes:

  • Collegiate football and baseball players
  • High school cross country and track, wrestling teams, and volleyball
  • Marathoners, triathletes
  • Those looking to increase muscle mass

Optimal nutrition is the final key to enhancing your performance on and off the field, and in and out of the gym.

What you can expect when you come in:

  • Assessment of current eating pattern and energy balance
  • Coaching on optimal nutrition for exercise training by matching nutrition to training phases and goals
  • Discussion on pre-, during, and post-workout fueling for optimal performance
  • Coaching on foods to help you recover between training sessions
  • Tracking progress of body mass, body fat, and muscle mass changes
  • Coaching on appropriate hydration
  • Two personalized menus
  • Education on food selection and education

 

If you’re looking to improve your time, body composition, speed, overall performance… or simply want to know what to eat before, during, and after a workout, RG Nutrition and Wellness will help you reach your goals.
